Swiss International Air Lines Flight Cancellation Compensation
Regardless of whether you're at home or abroad when you find out about your Swiss International Air Lines flight cancellation, you're going to have a lot of questions and concerns. The first thing to know is that Swiss International Air Lines should find you a new flight, or offer you a full refund.
But because flight cancellations almost always play havoc with your travel plans, you should check whether you're also entitled to claim Swiss International Air Lines canceled flight compensation to help make up for the disruption.
Under EU regulations, Swiss International Air Lines should pay passengers up to £520 per person when they cancel flights at late notice — that is, any flight cancellation less than 14 days before it was due to depart.
Swiss International Air Lines will not have to pay compensation if they were able to offer a replacement flight with similar departure and arrival times to the original. You can check the exact requirements on our flight cancellation compensation page.
Airlines also don't have to pay compensation if extraordinary circumstances were at play. That means that if an unusual situation occurred that was outside of the airline's control but forced a cancellation, there's no Swiss International Air Lines flight cancellation compensation owed. Typical examples include bad weather or a strike by air traffic control.

Air Passenger Rights and Flight Compensation
Because Swiss International Air Lines is based within the EU, almost all the flights they offer are protected by EC 261, one of the world's most comprehensive laws for air passenger rights.
The EC 261 Regulation grants passengers the right to claim compensation when they have experienced delayed, cancelled or overbooked flights, through no fault of their own. Passengers can also claim previous flights. Often you can still claim flights from the past 3 years.
